's dealing with the difficult subject matter. it deals with religion and catholicism, and there are some criticisms, and people get touchy when you criticize their religion. you have to be careful. i knew if i could make people laugh people relax a little. they are not so scared about talking about difficult subjects. lex like i am the first woman you have ever fallen in love with? >> sure. and i wasn't your first love? >> of course not. >> i thought i was. stop it. it's dumb. how old are you? come on. >> 41. seen -- scene, it's about 14 minutes long. talk to me about the reason for doing that, why you think it works? that's a long opening scene, but it works. >> we rehearsed this take probably 21 days as a dialogue -- we are driving the car 20 miles of road that has to be blocked out with this crazy take. the kids are asleep in the car. when you are young you are always talking, and you are with the woman and she is with you and your philosophizing. what's going to happen as you get older? those moments of whimsy are hard to find. that was the germ that started the screenplay. where ar
in georgia yes two bills with religion our liberty in their titles and were seen as a way to possibly discriminate against gay men and lesbian, go down in that. also in another conservative state. we are seeing a tidal wave on this issue that i think will be hard for people to resist in just about any corner of it. >> yeah, you put it that way. that's extraordinary, coming from how long you've been covering these state and national issues. jackie, when you look at the legal issues here which as we've said we're -- which combined with the political legislature, and then something else, jackie, which is the fact that these issues are being covered differently, i think, and not covered always on the sometimes conservative terms of calling it religious liberty. a lot of people support religious liberty, but they don't think that means it should be a cover for discrimination. >> well, yeah, i think one of the things that's been interesting, particularly with the republican party is the strain of libertarianism that's been infused recently, which is another reason why i think you see some r

in the name of religion. people who opposed the bill celebrated the bill and they believe this would have allowed them to refuse service to gays and lesbians based on their religious beliefs. >> it was used to discriminate against them and that was never used for that matter. >> they are concerned about an economic backlash. >>> in ukraine tensions are high with strong ties with russia. >> pro russian and ukrainian demonstrators are facing off. now there are reports that pro russian force have taken over the building and have raised the russian flag and they are now in russia where he was asked for protection. >>> happening now, the wet weather is raising big concerns about mudslides and these are areas that have been burned by wildfires. now in the antelope valleys, they are stocking up on sandbags and mandatory evacuations are getting with a hillside that got here. >> i am saying. -- staying? >> you are saying in. >> yes. i am saying. >>> this could bring waves of 10 to 15 feet at the beaches let alone all of the rain as well. >> oh, boy. 5:48 is the time. sal will be busy for the whole
to the right. are they not? >> they my be. you know, i say forget making a movie about religion. they should make a movie about piracy. that's where hollywood as a big problem. they see eye to eye with conservatives. they respect private property, intellectual or otherwise. they realize it is critical to the economic growth. will is common ground. they a good thing between hollywood and conservatives. >> you look at the number of this hollywood par and are giving more money to republicans than democrats i don't see them as going right wing. in the movies businessmen always made convenient villains. it was true in "chinatown." it is true. it hasn't changed at all. >> is isn't will a change of direction here that you can sense? >> i don't sense that. i think rick is absolutely right. hollywood has always been about profits and i would throw into that that hollywood has been more conservative than people won't admit. taxi drivers, one of the great all-time film, very conservative message. even if you look at spike lee films, they often bring with hem conservative messages perhaps -- >> quick. >
everybody else. we should treat everybody equally, no matter race, religion -- and so they would have been, i think, the state would the have been in trouble, because the super bowl was coming, and i'm sure other events was coming and people would have pulled out if that would have happened in arizona. i just don't like that either. >> magic johnson, thank you very much. great to be with you. >> you, too. >> see you on the final 25? >> i hope so. >>> we'll see if he's on the final 25. final concluding thoughts about magic, here to speak to the wpo, although not a member. his business interests go beyond those magic johnson theaters that you may be familiar with. he had lots of starbucks, which he ultimately sold back to howard and the starbucks company. his real estate interests, food service interests move far and wide. he has hotels in austin, hoboken and elsewhere and real estate holdings. magic the man, he is a huge, huge man, but what stands out about him is as big as he is, and he is big, he has an even bigger personality. and finally, there are two guys that i've met in my life who
religion, also under consideration at this point. joining me here onset to make sense of all of this is one of the big voices from the last few years of lgbt advocacy, roberta caplin argued edie windsor's case before the supreme court. i can only imagine how stressful it was. you had an entire movement riding on your shoulders. thank you for joining us and trying to make sense of the latest events. we see yesterday's news out of texas, similar rulings before that in virginia and kentucky. what do you think the future holds for those cases? what do you think the next thing to hit the supreme court might be? >> the windsor case came down at the end of june. since that decision there have been 15 court decisions in courts throughout the country in places like as you mentioned, kentucky, virginia, utah, oklahoma, all relying on windsor. i don't think that's surprising at all. windsor is about the core dignity of gay people and how they have the same type of dignity and should get the same respect as everyone else. once the supreme court has said that as i predicted back in the summer, it's all
